Post #45

This video is a scene from the movie “Big Fish” directed by Tim Burton. As we all know, Burton is widely known for his dark, eccentric and magical films. What I liked about this clip is that it visibly shows how magic realism can exist not only in literature, but in all forms of art, like this movie. This can be seen when time stops during the performance and then rapidly moves in order to “make up for the time when time was still.” I also feel like this correlates to García Márquez’s story about the man dreaming and yet feeling what his body is feeling in the physical world (The man felt chilly because he assumed his cover must have fallen off during his sleep).
